International Perfume Bottles Association

Welcome to the world of perfume bottle collecting

There is a fascination and intrigue to collecting perfume bottles. Whether a beginner or a seasoned collector, you will likely use these words (and more?) to describe our shared passion – Breathtaking! Captivating! Exciting! Challenging! Rewarding! Historically Educational! Good Investment! Beautiful Craftsmanship!

The pictures above are only a taste of the entire spectrum of this collecting specialty. Visit the Virtual Museum to see the various galleries that reflect the many aspects and sub-specialties of perfume bottle collecting. Perhaps you enjoy commercial bottles, or perfume burners? Novelties, Victorian laydowns, miniatures or art glass?

Did you think you were alone in the world enjoying this collecting specialty? Well, no longer. There is a large group of like-minded collectors who are passionate about this subject. They are the heart of this organization, producing a highly rated color quarterly magazine and presenting a world-class annual convention.
